Short description of the organization and its work to control and eliminate NTDs

As a scientist who also live in sub-Saharan Africa, I have seen the devastation; preventable lives lost, many potential lives that had so much promise lost, a lot more people living below their potential locked under the clutches of neglected tropical diseases. I believe mankind has no excuse to continue to allow people to continue to suffer and die,whilst the tools and knowledge and funds available are capable at least to control and eliminate several of these diseases.
I believe that if we create awareness, raise enough money in order to be able to implement our knowledge and scale up interventions we can do a lot more to save lives and eliminate myriad of these infectious diseases.
